With summer just around the corner I thought I would highlight a few fun in the sun toys and crafts to help keep your little ones entertained!
First up is this Sand Play Set by Green Toys Inc. for the sandbox or trips to the beach! All of their toys are made in the USA using recycled milk jugs, contain no BPA, phthalates, or lead paint, and the packaging is made of recycled cardboard! Fun, safe, and eco-friendly!
There are few things more fun than finger painting. Don’t let your kids have all the enjoyment – make your own messy masterpieces too! Planet Green has an easy recipe for non-toxic, completely natural fingerpaint … safe enough for the littlest Van Goghs.
If you like crafting with your kids, Ecoart is a great book I found on the Think Button site that also teaches your children about the environment. [Excerpt from product desrciption: “Nature’s bounty becomes the tool through which children learn to respect nature, care for their environment, and preserve the earth’s fragile ecological balance. All of this is done while discovering their own artistic natures.”]
And how cute is this Walking Elephant from Plan Toys?!?!? It’s a rocker that “walks” forward when your child rocks from side to side. Plan Toys is a green company that manufactures green toys using ‘responsible and sustainable” methods. For more information on their standards and company, click HERE.
